And so it goes, not so long ago
My life was falling apart
Got down so low I damned-near choked
On the blood of my bleeding heart
At the end of my rope
Newfound utopia had a reprimand
Without no friends did seem my end
Still remember the Voice in my head said
“Never surrender.”

For the summer of my school daze was over
I was down to the dregs
And the band was on its last legs
‘Twas a bummer
Reached the breaking point October
High upon a mountainside
Reached out and cried to the sky (help me!)

Never surrender
Never surrender to the devil

Door-to-door J.W. boys
Ornery 'Christian' salesman
Draw the sword and thrust it toward
My sorry mortal soul, man
Oh, I got to get away, can’t take it this way:
Are you for us, are you against us?
So the page is writ and the Scripture’s ripped
Yet from the bowels of my soul He said,
“Never surrender!”

Turned to face the music of my soul search
And in the sound there was truth
To be found in the inner groove
To embrace the beauty of the whole earth
So turn around inside you
And tell yourself Good News!

Well have you ever wondered ‘bout it
Will we ever be free?
Ever checked into the lost-and-found
Of broken hearts and shattered dreams?
So it goes, the cold winds blow
Head-on, one-way, dead-end
But where there’s hope you don’t let go
Remember who your friends are
And never surrender
No never surrender
Never surrender to the devil ...
